    People need to stop whining about usps, you don't know how lucky you are.

    Undercover isn't cut for the particularly short and looks very good on all builds, generally average height looks best, 5'8-5'10.

    Haha, well I'm like 6'5"


    I feel your pain, at 6'3" I pretty much accepted Undercover wasn't meant for me.

    The best thing about USPS is that you can go to the store online and order as many priority mail boxes as you'd like. FOR THE FREE.

    Unfortunate to hear you've had trouble with USPS. They've never lost any of my packages or delivered anything late, so I have no qualms with them.

    I like usps most of the time. Their tracking system sucks though.

    Ok, here's a bit about Belgium postal service.

    You can't get online discounts, you can't print your labels, you have to pay for the boxes (about 2,5/pce), as of January 2011 the XL boxes aren't sold anymore, at 10" x 7.5" x 4" the Large boxes are now the bigger boxes available, the padded envelopes are flimsy as shit, as of January 2011 rates have increased by 20% (Happy New Year !), notices get "lost" between the mailman's hand and your mailbox, carrier pickup doesn't exist, saturday delivery doesn't exist (anymore).

    Fuck privatisation.

    Dude if you don't "get it" or don't like it that's fine and I understand that, but don't try to tell people that what amounts to a hobby makes them insecure. I'm pretty sure you either don't care about things like design and fit, or have never had the chance to compare Eddie Bauer/ W+H shirts. If you like Eddie Bauer, great, but don't try to tell me their tees are the same as James Perse, W+H, Velvetmen, etc

    If I gave that impression, I didn't mean to. Consider me a fellow hobbyist, then, a good fit enthusiast....

    Very succinctly, what I objected to was the idea (advanced by a few posters) that there's an exact correlation between quality (of construction, of fit, etc.) and price -- and the apparent anger/confusion over why rich people would ever choose to wear something like Eddie Bauer. Ironically, this attitude is distinctly middle class, probably the exact thing that poster doesn't want to project.

    Hopefully you'll agree there's a huge difference between commenting on one particular area of interest and condemning an entire board or love of style or clothing in general.

    Any case, it's mostly been a lot of fun interacting w/ the good peeps of SF...

    Australian service is marginally better then this

    Shipping to US is now an extra 9 bucks per package so it's like 50-60 bucks a package now
